This Old Man Is Visited By A Special Guest Every Day, And All He Does Is Open His Window
João Silvestrini lives in Barretos, Brazil. Each day, he looks forward to a visit from an unlikely friend who lives just outside his house. In old age, many people choose to adopt a dog or a cat to provide themselves company, but not Silvestrini. Equipped with his trusty feeder filled to the brim with nectar, he opens his window and greets his favorite companion: a hummingbird.
The small bird flaps around João's kitchen with the comfort of someone who's lived there for years. The old man speaks to the bird as one would an old friend, most likely encouraging it to eat as much as it wants. After eating, the bird sticks around for an extra moment before going on its way, leaving João with a smile and plans for tomorrow.
